Abe Blashko (1920-2011) was born and raised in Seattle, WA. He was a self-taught artist who concentrated primarily on drawing and printmaking. In 1938, he became the youngest artist to have a solo exhibition at the Seattle Art Museum. They now have a representative selection of his work in the museum’s permanent collection.

Most of Blashko’s work reflects the political and social struggles of American life during the Great Depression, the period in which most of his drawings and lithographs were made. In 1942, he produced an extensive series of color drawings with the theme “Seeds of Aryan Kultur” as a response to the Nazi atrocities happening in Europe that claimed the lives of his family members in Poland. These drawings depicted in graphic detail the horrors of the holocaust. The Nazi’s were all depicted as “ratmen,” a grotesque depiction of them as more rodent than human. One of these drawings was illustrated in Art Digest, one of the leading art journals at the time. However, the majority of the drawings are/were too graphic and too controversial for publication and were not publicly exhibited until 1992 in New York City.

Blashko moved to New York City in 1942, and supported himself as a teacher, illustrator, political cartoonist, and photographer. Besides the Seattle Art Museum, his work is included in the permanent collections of the Henry Art Gallery at University of Washington, the Library of Congress in Washington, DC, The Nora Eccles Harrison Museum, Logan, Utah and numerous public and private collections.
